Originating from the Hurlimann Brewery in Switzerland, Fermentis Saflager S-189 is a great all-around dry lager strain of yeast! It is particularly good for a range of lagers, including pilsners! It has a very neutral flavor profile which makes it good choice for lagers of almost any kind. It has been specifically recommended for bocks, and does well in pilsners as well. It has a wide temperature range as well, with an ideal temperature range that is slightly higher than that of most lager strains. In addition to being flavor-neutral, it is a highly flocculant strain that can easily produce clear beers that are very drinkable! For your next lager, give Saflager S-189 a try.
